Wall Kickers review for iOS and Android.
No matter how advanced gaming on mobile gets, there is a certain type of game that really excels on mobile.
An arcade style game with just the right amount of difficulty (not too much, not too little), and a whole bunch of things to unlock, in a never-ending circle with plenty of updates, is the kind of game that majority of the people would have on their phones.
Regardless, whether you are a gamer or not.
These games are perfect for whenever you have any downtime or time to kill, or just to take your mind off things. That is why these types of games are successful. But you have to get the formula right, and that is the hard part for developers.
The Developers Kumobius, are really good at it, and Wall Kickers is another good example.
Basically, you are at the bottom of a structure and you need to make your way up. It doesn’t matter what type of structure it is or what your character is. Because that is not what these games are about.
It is about your constant movement upwards, and the obstacles you have to get over. Just so you know, you will be starting off as a monkey, and you will slowly graduate into other creatures.
So, to move upwards in Wall Kickers, you will be jumping from one vertical surface to the other. And in some cases, you will need to cling on to the walls for dear life and jump at the exact right moment.
If your character lands on a horizontal plain though, it will automatically start to run. Wall Kickers is constantly moving, and players need to really focus on what they are doing.
The laws of physics do not really apply in this game but that is where the fun is. Tapping on the screen once will make you jump from one wall to the other and tapping on the screen again will make your character ‘kick the wall’ and move in the opposite direction. Long taps will help you jump further.
That is basically everything you can do in Wall Kickers, but if that is the case, then why are we even talking about this game?
Why is it Good?
That is where Kumobius comes in. Their expert knowledge in level design and gameplay will keep you hooked to the game. Before you know it, you have spent a good part of an hour playing Wall Kickers. Trust me I know.
The best part is that you won’t be facing the same challenges over and over again, and that is what keeps you coming back. But, given the nature of the game, some levels will feel very familiar.
The further you get in the game the harder the level design will be. You will have to not only jump but do double-jumps to reach the other side.
The walls will keep getting smaller and the obstacles keep getting deadlier. There are also spikes which you want to avoid and conveyor walls which you want to use.
Since Wall Kickers is all about walls, you will find all sorts of walls in the game. Walls that flip around, moving walls, and electrified walls which will turn you into BBQ in no time.
The Layout design is great, and the controls are very responsive, which is what you need for a game like Wall Kickers. When you die, and run out of chances, you don’t have to start from the beginning, rather your score is set to zero.
There is a coin system in Wall Kickers and what you would want to do is collect as many as you can and then brag about it to your friends. If, you are that type of person, which I am …..
What else can you do with these coins? Well, eventually when you have enough, you can use them to unlock new characters or a new setting. Yes, it is all cosmetic but it fun to collect things!
How else can you get coins? Well, you can watch videos and video ads, and opening time chests. Also, if there is a character or back drop that you really want, you can of course use your real money.
Make it rain for the developers.
I’m not saying these characters and backdrops are not important, you do really would want to get your hands on all of them to get best out of Wall Kickers. More than that, it’s worth it.
At the end of the day, Wall Kickers is really fun to play and it makes you feel good. And that is the whole point isn’t it?
If you are looking for an extremely satisfying arcade experience on your phone, look no further than Wall Kickers. With its simplicity on the surface and all the complex bits underneath working perfectly in harmony, Wall Kickers is a winner.
